Otto Karow
Burmese Buddhist Sculpture - The Johann Möger Collection.
White Lotus Press: Bangkok 2003.
Paperback, 162 Seiten, reich illustriert.


This Offers the reader an admirable survey and description of a sacral art that is yet too little studied, the rich Burmese tradition. Of particular importance in this collection are the pieces forged in the Shan States depicting various incidents in the life of the Buddha as well as the many pieces representing the Buddha in royal attire, herein designated the "Jambupati"-type. Whether the artifacts displayed are of narrative scenes, single figures, votive stupas, or house temples we have in this collection the full range of craftsmanship expressing, in various "gradients of quality", Burmese Buddhist iconographic ideals.

Sylvia Fraser-Lu
Burmese Laquerware.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 2000.
Paperback, 222 Seiten, 361 Farbfotos, 19 s/w Abbildungen, 20 Zeichnungen.
ISBN 974-8304-82-5

For the past 200-300 years the art of lacquer has been one of the show industries of Burma. Early travellers to that country have commented most favourably on it and it would be a rare Burmese household or monastery which did not have at least a few prized pieces of lacquer.
The initial impetus for the development of the craft in all probability came from neighbouring China and Thailand, but Burmese creative genius channelled it in new and unique directions. Burma#s polychrome incised wares are unsurpassed for their boldness and liveliness of design while its gilt moulded lacquer inlaid with glass mosaic #outshines# European ormolu work in its sheer sumptuous effect. The best of Burma#s gold-leaf design work is equal to that of Thailand, the leading exponent of the craft in South-East Asia. Painted wares too are emblematic of a robust folkcraft tradition.
Over the years the Burmese lacquer worker has been most adept at adapting to changing circumstances brought about by the colonial experience and post-war independence. To meet the needs of a diverse clientele, artisans have added different colours, new forms and experimental techniques to the repertoire. Despite modern innovations, the lacquer artisan continues to draw strength from the past. Ancient temple murals continue to provide much inspiration and subject matter.
This book explains the various technologies practised by lacquer artisans, and describes the various forms, and the use of a wide range of wares. It also introduces the reader to some of the leading exponents of the art in different parts of Burma. Lacquerware collections both within that country and abroad have also been described.

Ma Thanegi
The Illusion of Life - Burmese Marionettes.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 1995.
Hardcover, 108 Seiten, 101 Farbfotos, 17 s/w Abbildungen.
ISBN 974-8299-61-9

In the 18th and 19th centuries, Burmese marionettes enjoyed a rare and powerful privilege as speakers for both kings and subjects. Never merely for entertainment, puppetry was a high art held in much esteem. Marionettes were means of making people aware of current events; a medium for educating the masses in literature, history and religion; a display of lifestyle and customs. These yoke-thei, 'small dolls', enjoyed greater freedom of speech, dress and movement than live performers. They therefore played a significant role in the development of dance and dramatic arts. The author is a well known Burmese painter, and this lively book is liberally spiced with information about Burma and Burmese ways. It contains a systematic presentation of the Burmese marionette tradition, a tradition in the danger of extinction.

Maung Khe Sein and Joseph A. Withey
The Great Po Sein

Orchid Press: Bangkok 1998.
Paperback, 200 Seiten, 13 Zeichnungen, 15 Abb.
ISBN 974-8299-03-1

This book is about the legendary Po Sein (1877-1952), "Father of the Burmese Theatre", told by his son Maung Khe (Kenneth) Sein. It is the story of PO Sein, the performer, his ambitions, his struggles, his many imaginative theatrical innovations, his hypnotic effect on those who worked for him and those who watched him perform, and his very romantic life and loves. Equipped with exceptional artistry and a splendid sense of showmanship, he survived, in his lifetime, the last of the Burmese kings, the British, the Japanese and the Burmese Nationalists. Moreover, he conquered them all with his enchanting art. The history of his remarkable troupe, which entertained generations of Burmese from the mid-1890s until his death in 1952, and which continued for two more decades, led by his two very able sons, is also the history of Burmese performing arts in this century.
